Defense takes the lead in first scrimmage

Washington State University completed its first controlled scrimmage of the spring season and it was the defense getting off to the quicker start.

"I think our defense is a little ahead of our offense right now, said head coach Bill Doba. "Intensity-wise I'm happy with the way they played. The defense was moving all over the field. We still need to improve in a lot of areas and that's why we have spring football."

Offensively sophomore-to-be DeMaundray Woolridge carried seven times for 23 yards, including a 14-yard burst on his final carry. Dwight Tardy, Kevin McCalland Isao Puailoa also had carries from the running back position. Junior quarterback Alex Brink completed 4-of-7 passes for 26 yards, including an 11-yard strike to tight end Jed Collins. Brink was one of four quarterbacks to take snaps in the scrimmage, along with Gary Rogers, Cole Morgan and Arkelon Hall.

Juniors-to-be Michael Bumpus and Finas Rabb each had two catches as eight different receivers caught passes on the day.

The Cougars' first full scrimmage is set for next 9:30 a.m., Saturday, April 1, at Martin Stadium.
